Pool filter problem.?

Our house came with a built in pool, the pool filter is from Pentair Pool Products. The pressure is always 30-32 psi yet theres barely any suction for the underwater vacuum and the drains are useless. We opened it yesterday and cleaned the pads, nothing has changed though its still getting high pressure but no suction. The pumped water is clear and full of water. Any suggestions?

You had better check to find out what kind of pressure you are supposed to have. That pressure in my system (a Hayward DE filter) would Indicates that the filter is totally clogged and is in desperate need of cleaning. There would be no because the pump suction is trying to but can not force the water through the filter (which therefore produces the high pressure reading). My system runs between 10 and 20lbs. When it hits over 20 I have to clean it. Your system may be different but I doubt it.
